|[Eg0_036] Digital Mass : The Murk II - Digital Mass|
Back from a short tour in USA, the anonymous canadian drone collective Digital Mass has recently created a sequel to a previous long-from drone The Murk, (already released by Eg0cide last year). Bleaker, colder than the 1st issue, this new track is like a slow descent into some unknown caverns. Minimalist dark ambient at its best

|Digital Mass - Rain [wh183] - Digital Mass|
Digital Mass, anonymous artist(s) familiar to netlabel drone-ambient enthusiasts, contributes a long drone work made especially for Webbed Hand's "Rain" series. Rumours abound concerning the identity of the shadowy figure behind this project. Truly a rootless cosmopolitan with a wide arsenal of sound-makers at his/her disposal, it has been recently intimated that our hero may be Chilean, but this cannot be confirmed...

|[Eg0_081] Digital Mass : The Murk 3 - Digital Mass|
Mexican sound explorers Digital Mass have decided to add a 3rd chapter to their drone saga "the murk". Sounds used in "Lights in the Murk" were produced exclusively by electric guitars - played with various electric devices which helped to extract unexpected drone out of the body of the instrument even without touching the strings.

|Digital Mass - Rain 2 [wh232] - Digital Mass|
Restless explorer of the soundscape Digital Mass brings Rain into the sacred realm with this new long-form drone work. "Tired of the agitation of modern life, the German mastermind of Digital Mass has gone for a retreat in a monastery lost somewhere in eastern Europa, during the rainy April of 2012. This was also the occasion to record the sound of rain and some sacred chants, which were later processed, edited and mixed to create a new "Rain" piece for Webbed Hand Records...

|[Eg0_026] Fosel - The Enormous Room - Fosel|
Eg0cide is glad that The Murk has gained attention by experimental/ambient composer Kurt Nimmo aka Foseld : he offered us not only a great remix of this Digital Mass track, but a full album of mysterious, spacious soundscapes. The album has a very well chosen title : "the enormous room" and should appeal to fans of deep, experimental drone. It also contains a remix of Andrew Deakin's Pannus Mihi Panis, taken from the compilation album Field Notes released by Earth Monkey Productions

|Sadayatana 099: Absence Of Darkness - John Tocher|
A shadow may be infinitely dark, and also of infinite degrees of absence of darkness. The beginnings and ends of shadow lie between the light and darkness and may be infinitely diminished and infinitely increased. Shadow is the means by which bodies display their form. The forms of bodies could not be understood in detail but for shadow. - Leonardo da Vinci, The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci III startartisttitle00:00Grove Of WhispersLive Electro-Music.com Autumn 2012-09-2259:33Digital MassCold...

|Sadayatana 067: Beast People - John Tocher|
Show starts with a collage and looping of tracks by Universos Virtuales (fantastic!) and generally moves into drone territory and layering of samples taken from the Librivox recording of H.G. Wells' "The Island of Dr. Moreau". The samples were woven into the mix via a script that selected then at random then delayed the selection and playing of the next sample by a random interval. It worked well but you can hear a sample colliding with the voice over / podcast id...

|Sadayatana 032: My Grandparents House - John Tocher|
Opened and closed the show with some 78 rpm recordings from archive.org. Vera Lynn's version of "I'm in the Mood for Love". I wanted a dirty scratchy record. Instead it had been processed to reduce the noise. So hey! I added my own noise. And then Lizzie Miles gives us "Cotton Belt Blues" to close out the show. Yea I know it's not ambient music. If I could explain why this works I would be a writer instead of dj'ing this show...

|Sadayatana 066: Time Zero - John Tocher|
This one fashioned from tracks selected at random 10 minutes before show time. Not random exactly but picked via some secret intelligence built into a program I wrote. My way of collaborating with God so to speak. I like the way it came out. Hope you do too. The usual crunchy ambient sounds with drone, sound collage and some looping. Includes music of Akoustik Timbre Frekuency, Akumu, Argedco Dosig G Manin, Backyard Ghost, Barbara Schubert, Dupage Symphony Orchestra, Chris Carter, Cisfinitum, Cl...

I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you...
